Hi, i have a Sedonia Kia 2002. the car started to beep and the brake light comes on. now the beeping is almost constant. the brake light stays on. the brake is fully released. if i turn to the right the beep keeps beeping or it comes on if not already on. if i turn to the left, the beeping stops and the light goes off. but if i turn it a little to the right it comes back on. if the beeping is on and i come to a stop it goes off as long as i keep my foot on the brake. when i let off the brake the beeping comes back on.
any help will be appreicated. the beeping is really getting to me now

check your brake fluid for proper level if good check brake switch for fault and or brake s them selves for extreme wear or damage --also if light stays on constantly have vehicle scanned for a trouble code most auto stores offer this service for free
try looking for the switch on your hand brake lever, they do have a tendency to cause problems, it could be that the switch is not being activated when you put the hand brake in the off position, refit and adjust it. if this doesn't work try unplugging it..
Beeping noise is the car alarm system for door open, key in the hole and the engine is off, parking lights are on and the door is open.
If the beeping sound can be heard while the doors are all closed properly, no lights are on, the key is not in the ignition switch, then one of these systems (doors, lights, accessories) are grounded.
You have to eliminate the cause one by one starting with the door switches which is the most likely cause, followed by the key in the switch sensor found at the base of the ignition switch (you have to open the steering wheel cover to check) and then lastly check that no lights are on when you close the door.
the alarm emitter is found at the end of the console box right below the car radio system.
hand brake lights are tied to hand brake, compensation block and somtimes a float in brake res. so check fluid level and to answer your question , yes a leaking rear wheel cyl. will cause a light but in that case it would not take too long to empty brake res. and be out of fluid at least to rear brakes anyway.
i would check yor brake light switch make sure its adjusted correctly whitch will be located behind your brake pedal remove it press the button in and out your brake lights should turn on and off if this dont happen i would try a new switch as it sounds to me like the switch is sending a constan 12 v feed to brake lights
